    You are right, but there is also a long history of doing what the WHO claim now to be avoiding, which is associating the virus with the geographic point of origin.

    What I read previously suggests also that they rushed out the name to preempt SARS-2 (SARS-CoV-2) becoming how it was referred to. I think it’s quite obvious that with the death of Li Wenliang, that aren’t keen to remind people that he had to confess to spreading rumours and their lame defence was that “it was not SARS”.

    I honestly don't think I can handle another season of city-wide paranoia and mask-wearing zombies. It needs to be over NOW.

    I will tell the authorities, no more cases or deaths and the 11,000 plus severe/critical cases to be instantly healed.
